It also slammed the iPhone's camera
Samsung isn't the only Apple competitor taking jabs at the iPhone in advertisements. Nokia and Microsoft called iPhone users zombies in the latest Lumia commercial.
In the newest
Nokia Lumia 925
ad, a man walks the streets at night in a horror-esque setting. He has his Lumia 925 in hand, and begins to encounter flashes of light accompanied by zombies.
The zombies are iPhone users, and the flashes of light are from their iPhone cameras.
What's Nokia getting at? Not only are iPhone users zombies, but their cameras are subpar to the Lumia 925's camera when it comes to taking pictures at night. The commercial's tagline is "The best pictures in any light. Even without the flash."
Check it out here:
Nokia's Lumia 925 is a Windows 8 smartphone that features a 4.5" AMOLED ClearBlack Touch display, 1280x768 px, 1.5 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4, 1GB RAM, 16/32GB storage, LTE, a 1.2 MP front-facing camera with 720p video and an 8.7 MP rear-facing camera with 1080p video.
This particular Lumia is only available to T-Mobile users in the U.S.

agreed. I don't think that the general audience would understand that they are talking about the flash on cameras making people look like zombies.
Still, not a bad little add. Nokia and MS have really done a decent job advertising this last year. Hopefully they keep it up.
